North Carolina's Aging & Disability Resource Centers
North Carolina Aging and Disability Resource Centers are called "Community Resource Connections for Aging and Disabilities" (CRC).
To find out if your county currently has a CRC, check out the NC Fact Sheet link.
The NC Division of Aging and Adult Services, NC careLINK, and the NC Division of Health and Human Services' Office of Long-Term Services and Supports are all working together with the aging and disability networks to provide seamless and hassle-free access to services and assistance for those in need. They support Person Centered Care and have developed and adopted a set of Person Centered Principles.
How Can I Access Services?
For now, as a consumer, you have multiple opportunities to connect to services and support. If you have an ADRC in your area, chances are your Area Agency on Aging is involved. Area Agencies on Aging are always available to assist you as well as your local aging services provider. Senior Centers are also knowledgable in local available services. If you need disability resources, there are many agencies available to help. A consumer in need can contact any of these options to get connected and to get assistance.
